Square Enix’s new third-person shooter Left Alive is out now on the PlayStation 4 and PC, bringing with it a blend of survival and action-packed showdowns from the minds of some famed video game developers and artists. It’s set in the Front Mission universe too which hasn’t seen a new release since 2010 – here’s hoping that Left Alive will prove popular enough for Square Enix to revive the series once more.
“LEFT ALIVE tells a human story of survival set during a devastating invasion in war-torn Novo Slava, Players are challenged to survive by uncovering alternate routes, crafting useful traps and weapons, and even turning enemy weaponry against them in order to save civilians trapped on the battlefield and uncover the truth behind the game’s mysteries.
The title was developed by veterans of the gaming industry, including Toshifumi Nabeshima (director, Armored Core series), Takayuki Yanase (mech designer, Ghost in the Shell: Arise, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Xenoblade Chronicles X) and Yoji Shinkawa from KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS (character designer, METAL GEAR series). Shinkawa designed each playable character, from the young Ruthenian staff sergeant Mikhail, to confident Nova Slava police force captain Olga, and ex-member of the rebel movement Leonid, who was framed for murder and sentenced to death.”
